Due to its nonaggressive nature, aikido is rapidly becoming the martial arts form most preferred by law enforcement officers. Now, all readers can learn valuable skills needed to thwart an attack and subdue an aggressor in The Secrets of Police Aikido.
In aikido, it is preferable to move out of the way of a punch, and it makes more sense to quickly take a person down, rather than stand toe-to-toe and punch it out. Readers of this book will develop a better sense of awareness and learn to control a situation by moving to positions of advantage and readiness. Chapters discuss the history of aikido, warm-up exercises, rules to keep in mind when approaching an opponent, maintaining self-control, and techniques for handling virtually any situation a reader may face.
Anyone interested in the martial arts will find The Secrets of Police Aikido both valuable and necessary.
